With great sadness we announce the passing of Rose Marie Halvorson on May 10, 2015, in Lumby, BC. Rose was born in Medicine Hat and lived and worked in Calgary in her younger years. She met and married Jim Halvorson of Lumby, where she worked at JW Inglis Elementary. She loved to sew, quilt, do puzzles and visit Reno.

Rose is survived by her husband, James Halvorson, two sons, Vince and Brian Halvorson, grandchildren, Jason and Jessica Halvorson and 7 brothers and sisters: Edward (Caroline), Judy (Rae), Susan (Garth), Pat (Tom), Dennis (Fran), Bruce and Alison.

Respecting Rose’s wishes, there will be a private family gathering. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Rose to the Alzheimer Society of BC.
